Have you ever had your fabric to totally change colors? I just finished an Around the World for my husbands volunteer fire dept. All I like is the border which is going to be a strip of black, a strip of red and another strip of black. I bought my black at Wal-mart (they didn't have any broadcloth) and it was REAL black, so I thought just maybe I should wash this first. I did and it came out brown! I would have been really mad if I had not washed it first. Today I went to Hobby Lobby, almost 40 miles away to get some black broadcloth.
